A quick google shows that it is USB 2.0 - there is no standard for USB
2.0 audio, so chances are no, it will not work with Linux until
someone reverse engineers a driver for it. USB 1.0 has a widely
adopted standard so almost all USB 1.0 sound cards work with Linux,
but it does not have enough bandwidth to do that many channels.
